So has anyone had WORSE morning sickness with subsequent pregnancies than with your first?

I was so hoping it would be a little easier this time around, but it's more miserable. Ack!

  • I don't know if mine was "worse" necessarily but all 3 were bad. I know it seemed worse but that could have been because I had more responsibility. I didn't have the option to lay down when I wasn't feeling good. Or just go out to eat when I knew I'd puke if I tried to cook. Hope that makes sense for ya. I'm sooo sorry your sick I certainly know it's miserable!

  • I didnt get sick at all with my 1st (she was a girl) But my 2n(a boy) I was super sick in the 1st trimester and if I didnt eat every 2 hours there after lol... He was a big guy;) I read something about the different hormones and levels that may have something to do with it. And BIG glasses of water ALWAYS helped! But you have to sit down and drink the WHOLE thing. Good Luck

  • I didn't have any with baby 1 or 3. My middle son wreaked havoc on me though. I have never been so sick in my life.

  • my second preg was 10000000 times worse!! both boys.. second one had a genetic kidney condition which is what made me so sick. i had to compensate for it - like since then - i have been allergic to red 40....

  • I had morning sickness with my first til 5 months and then he squished himself against my gallbladder (which made me more sick than the morning sickness). When I got pg with my 2nd I felt like I did when my ds was up against my gallbladder. Finally the morning sickness went away (unless I was in the car) around month 5 and than I got the worst heartburn anyone could ever imagine. It was so bad I just wanted it to be over so I wouldn't feel so sick.

  • Yup. Morning sickness in pregnancy #2 was way worse than #1. I had a boy the first time, a girl the second and another boy the third time. By then, ms wasn't horrible, but 7 years had passed.
